What is the Nike Junior Tour?
The Nike Junior Tour (NJT) is a worldwide series of junior singles tournaments for boys’ and girls’ 12s and 14s, sponsored by Nike.  There are currently 22 countries participating in the NJT, representing over 60,000 players; former NJT International Masters winners include Rafal Nadal and Robin Soderling! 

The winner(s) of the USTA Sectional Championships/Qualifying Events are invited to compete at the NJT USA National Masters, September 12-14 2008 at Stanford University in California.  Nike provides round trip transportation, food and lodging for the Sectional winner(s) (B14s, B12s, G14s, G12s) plus one team coach. The NJT USA National Masters winners go on to play in the NJT International Masters in late October at an international location. Expenses for the International Masters are paid for by Nike.
